    Buy new fan or use some fan controller program (Google).
    Maybe on the power supply too.

    Throw your computer in extremely cold non-conductive liquid.

    Buy a tube of thermal grease, preferably from Arctic Silver.
    Get the old off using a paper towel dipped in PURE acetone or just dip it in rubbing alcohol with a high percentage of rubbing alcohol preferably more than 70%.
    Rub it on the metal plate of the processor and the heat sinks
    Then make sure it's dry on the metal plates.
    Put a bit of thermal grease on the processor plate.
    Spread it as evenly around as you can.
    Mount on your heatsink and you're good to go.
